iPods Reinforce the Throwaway Society 28 November, 2006Posted by paralleldivergence in apple, Brad & Phil, education, iPod, Music, My Thoughts.
I sometimes feel sorry for the youth of today. While their world is one full of information, communication, interaction and technology, they are missing out on so much that we had just one generation ago. Although the 70’s and 80’s were only twenty or so years ago, the differences in society are staggering. The biggest change I have noticed is time. Now there is no time for anything. E-mail, voice-mail, cell phones, longer working hours and multi-skilling are the order of the day. The end of the working day and home time have become blurred. Back then, there was plenty of time – to think, to breathe, to listen to and appreciate music – to enjoy life.
Why are we Dumbing-down our Future? 18 November, 2006Posted by paralleldivergence in Brad & Phil, children, education, My Thoughts, Political Correctness.
None of us will live forever. The record advancements of the 20th Century were made on the back of strong education systems aimed directly at providing our children with the analytical and problem-solving skills that each generation needed to continue the progress that humanity was demanding. But now it appears that mankind has well and truly peaked and downhill is the only way to head.

For some people, life blossoms and pampers. For me, life aches.
Why is your life spent in eternal sunshine while mine is in perpetual fog? I commute sixty miles each day just to make ends meet while you have no concept of what either end actually is. People hang on your every word. People hang up on me.
How Hubble Killed God… 11 November, 2006Posted by paralleldivergence in astronomy, Brad & Phil, God, Hubble.
March 9, 2004: NASA releases a single image taken by the Hubble Space telescope that proves a fatal blow to the concept of God, but despite the compelling evidence, many simply don’t comprehend the significance of the image.
Which is Stronger, Manfluence or Godfluence? 4 November, 2006Posted by paralleldivergence in Brad & Phil, education, God, My Thoughts, Political Correctness.
I’ve often thought about the situation of the world. If I was born in India, I’d probably be a Hindu. If it was Brazil, I’d be Roman Catholic. If I was born in Iran, there’d be little chance of being anything but a Muslim. And if I was born in the Bible Belt in the United States, I’d be “born again” right after I was born.
